“MOUNTAIN OF DECEPTION a nice suspense novel about Silas (the poacher) and Tessa (the college professor). Tessa is taking a year-long break to write a novel after the death of her husband. She rents a cabin in the Smoky Mountains and is greeted by the local handy man who is building a shed in the back of her rental. The two quickly are checking each other out but he is quiet and reserved not sharing much detail about his life. She is more of an open book and will tell all about herself. The couple begin dating and Silas reveals some things about himself that shock both us and Tessa. However we listen to him make promises to change his life. There are a few twists and turns for the couple like his dangerous job, his boss and co-workers plus a noisy neighbor who wants to see the two split up. The end of the book is where a lot of the action takes place. The author does a good job showing the respect and love the two share for each other to make the decisions they make plausible.” ~ reviewed by Angie J for Twinsie Talk Reviews
